Dandelion Music is the music that grows up in the cracks in the pavement, spontaneous, joyful, and robust. Dandelion Music follows these principles:
- Everyone is musical!
- Music is communication - playing or singing together transcends language
- There’s no age limit on music
- Music happens in community and creates communities
- Musicking together is fun
It is my hope that you create your own dandelion music whilst matching the beeps of the pelican crossing, or whilst making up laundry songs with your toddlers, or whilst singing half-remembered
pop songs in the shower.
Here are the programmes Dandelion Music currently offers:
Little Musical Voyages
Interactive musical experiences for pre-schoolers. Energetic themed musical adventures for pre-schoolers including singing, percussion instruments and ukuleles. We create soundscapes, we sing,
we play, we imagine. All pre-school ages welcome. No need to book, just drop in.

Hartcliffe & Withywood Community Choir
The only free community choir in Bristol. We learn songs by ear so no reading music necessary. Our choir sings in three or four part harmony, and performs a range of songs from pop songs old and
new, to rounds, spirituals and traditional songs. We usually have around 30 attendees of all ages. Check the webpage for this term’s dates, song list and recordings of parts.
